Grow

2016 has seen the release of Robynn’s newsletter which I’m a huge fan of. We chat about that on the podcast along with the release and promotion of Lost in the Woods. It’s been so much fun to watch the collection grow as it was released in sections on Ravelry and IG. On today’s podcast you will learn how the collaboration with Julia Günther and Emily K Williams came together and find out all about that stunning landscape photography. If your interested in having a look at the patterns and photography that we chat about in the podcast from Lost in the Woods you can check out the lookbook at the end of the show notes and you can catch my previous review here on the blog.

Craft

Robynn chats about life as a designer and how she chose yarn for the Lost in the Woods collection. We delve into her everyday life, design inspiration and of course her choices for the 2016 Gift-a Long. Robynn’s love of knitting and the craft community is evident throughout the podcast and it brought a smile to my face to listen to her depth of knowledge and experience in the industry. From starting Purlescence to her almost 20 years of editorial and publishing experience, Robynn’s unique view on the craft industry is wonderful to listen to.
